I rated this a 5, hubby a 3, so we will meet in the middle. For next to NO calories and plenty of flavor. . .this is a great dressing for those dieting. I ate it on a salad of romaine, green pepper, celery, and cucumber (green salad I guess) and it was perfect. I did add extra vinegar as well as fresh herbs from the garden (basil, parsley, oregano and chives). I enjoyed it! I think you could do a buffalo chicken salad with if you added hot sauce and served it over a lettuce salad with chicken, celery and blue cheese!
This is a great salad dressing recipe ~ nice and savory. Like one of the other reviewers, I used regular tomato sauce and left out the salt. I also did not use tarragon vinegar as I didn't want to spend the money for it since I probably wouldn't use it again. Just used red wine vinegar. Thanks for posting this Kate. Made for I Recommend Tag.
This is a really good salad dressing...very colorful on the greens. I used regular tomato sauce, because that was what I had. So I left the salt out and only used 3/4 tsp worcestershire sauce. It was still very good. I used it on spinach salad with mushrooms, red bell peppers and purple onions. Great!

I'd call this recipe an oldie but goodie! Made this for a veg*n recipe swap, and unless you're careful not to use worcestershire sauce that has no anchovies, you won't be eating a veg*n salad. However, there are veg*n worcestershire sauces available. I made this with a regular can of tomato sauce and used half the salt. Instead of onion juice I used some dried onion flakes I had available, and I substituted tarragon vinegar with red wine vinegar but added some additional dried tarragon. I wish I had ready access to fresh herbs (like Rita), but this turned out fine as is. I also appreciated the low-calorie aspect of this dressing that doesn't sacrifice taste! BF liked it too. I served it on top of a simple romaine and radicchio salad. Thanks Kate!
